Fountain House

Institute of Mental Health

A Project of Lahor Mental health Association ( L M H A )

(LMHA) was formed in 1962
to mobilize efforts & resources for the
uplift and promotion of mental health in the country.

Fountain House is about the power of community.
It was created to relieve the loneliness and stigma that affect
so many people who are living with serious mental illnesses,
like schizophrenia,
bipolar disorder,
and major depression.

Serious mental illness disrupts lives
people lose their jobs,
they drop out of school,
they alienate their families and friends,
and they end up alone.

Fountain House is dedicated to the recovery of men and women
with mental illness by providing opportunities
for our members to live, work, and learn,

The institution was initially started by
Prof. Dr. Rashid Chaudhry (Late)
Sitara-e-Imtiaz (SI) and Tamgha-e-Quaid-e-Azam (TQA)
and his colleagues
